City Theatre PA

City Theatre began its existence in June of 1975 as the City Players. Described as Pittsburgh's most adventurous theatre, City Theatre specializes in new plays and has brought to Pittsburgh playwrights such as Adam Rapp, Christopher Durang, and Jeffrey Hatcher. City Theatre's mission is to provide an artistic home for the development and production of contemporary plays that engage a diverse audience. The Theatre's facilities include the 270-seat mainstage, the 100-seat Lester Hamburg Studio, and the Charles Morris Building, which houses rehearsal halls, and costume, prop, and paint shops. In 2004, City Theatre purchased a former steel rolling plant across from the theatre that more than doubled available space.
